Hi Eric,

You can visit the famous buildings of Chandigarh whose architect is Le Corbusier!

If that is not thrilling enough, how about an IndiaMike Meet-Up? (You may be the first at IndiaMike to propose one.)

I've passed through Ch'garh many times,but never felt the urge to stay there.
Kasauli &/or Shimla are worth a visit,or if you are still pursuing the Spiritual consider a journey to Rewalsar Lake a Tibetan Buddhist settlement with lots of Buddhist Temple around a small lake & 20mins uphill you can visit the caves of Padmasambhava. KK

Depends on your interests? Pinjore is worth a half day trip, Kausali too - we got an impromptu tour of the brewery there and even had a few 'nips' on the house. I played tennis every morning at the stadium - sector 10 and see if you can schmooze an invite to the Chandigarh Club somehow - if you can, do it - it's a very nice evening out. Don't miss the Government Museum & Art Gallery, it's full of sculpture, paintings, manuscripts & other object d'art. Okay, that ought to keep you busy for a day or three .....
We shall not cease from exploration, and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time. ~

Go to the nearest barbeque nation and witness the indian adaptation of Korean BBQ that has taken our country's middle classes by storm ....the Chandigarh branch is quite a hit.

Thank you all very much for the advice!

If you want to do shopping , you can go to sector 17 ,35 or to malls like DT mall or Paras down town square, Fun Republic. If you are looking for some good drinking places where you can sit around drink and watch any live matches on screen you can go to Cafe Oz , sector 9 , chandigarh or Hops and Grains sector 9 , panchkula. Other than these places we have a bowling arena also at Times Square sector 14 , panchkula. There are many other things also to do in chandigarh depending on your taste . Chandigarh is not at all a boring city

Hi Eric I live in Chandigarh and to be frank its not much a tourist attraction but a place of attraction for wealthy people to live. No doubt it is the best place to live in India but as far as foreign tourist is concerned there isn't much to do than shopping.

There are many places to visit in north India... India has a high seat of spiritual knowledge. Tourist place to go - Kashmir, Delhi, Mumbai, Gujarat, Rajasthan...
If you are a food lover, than it's good to go Punjab... It's amazing...
